Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat, made some startling revelations recently on The Kapil Sharma Show about how some filmmakers crossed limits to add raunchiness to their movies. The actress claimed that a producer once asked if he could fry egg on her belly.
"Once I was shooting a song for a film. And the producer seemed to be a novice. So he was trying to figure out a way to portray 'Mallika is very hot.' So, he sent an idea through the choreographer - 'Can I fry an egg on your belly in the song?' It's true! The producer's actually asked me this," Mallika said on The Kapil Sharma Show.
When an astonished panellist Archana Puran Singh asked Mallika whether she did this, the actress laughed, saying: "No, I didn't."

While speaking to a journalist in another interview to Bollywood Hungama recently, Mallika Sherawat claimed that a director once said: "I want to do something different. So in this dance step, aapke kamar pe nah.. main garam garam roti sekunga."
Recently, in an interview to PTI, Mallika said that she lost out on a number of projects as male actors could not stomach her opinionated nature and replaced her with their girlfriends. The actor, who got a breakthrough with "Murder" almost 15 years ago, said when she looks back at all those people, they look like fools.
The 42-year-old actor said when she started to speak about social issues, including the mindset of people towards women, no one took her seriously.
The actress said that with the arrival of digital platforms, things are looking up for all those actors who could not do much in the "traditional, formulaic Bollywood" set up.
She will be next seen in ALTBalaji's horror comedy "Booo... Sabki Phategi", directed by Farhad Samji. The actor said she has never been part of an over the top comedy like this and hence had to be careful to not miss comic beats.
